  1. Performed by "The President's Own" United States Marine Chamber Orchestra and the Cathedral Singers November 10, 2019 Washington National Cathedral (Washington, D.C.)
  2. Regardless of what the rules are, I wouldn't expect anything from TROS to be up on the site until the day of the film's release. I think that's how it's been with TFA, TLJ, and Rogue One, if I recall correctly. But as it stands now, Disney hasn't posted anything (music or otherwise) on their primary FYC page for the five films they already have listed. I hope that changes soon, if only that it'll bode well for TROS. They have always come through in the past so let's hope that nothing changes in that regard.
  3. NEW SCORES/SONG AVAILABLE Focus Features Downton Abbey (John Lunn) [9 cues, 18:13] Harriet (Terence Blanchard) [29 cues, 56:16] Harriet [Song - "Stand Up" (Joshuah Brian Campbell & Cynthia Erivo), 05:04]
  4. The FYC has been posted on the Fox Searchlight page. 14 cues, including a mix of JNH's score and existing classical pieces, and totaling over 69 minutes of music. For more info, visit... 
  5. The FYC has been posted on the Fox Searchlight page. Same number of cues but they don't appear to be identical to the commercial release. Plus, the FYC is only 41+ minutes. For more info, visit...
  6. Yes, I noticed that, too, and thought it strange. Maybe BAFTA and Golden Globes don't have the same restrictions imposed by the Academy?
  7. NEW SCORES AVAILABLE Fox Searchlight Pictures LINK 1 or 2 Hidden Life, A (James Newton Howard) [14 cues, 1:09:37] Jojo Rabbit (Michael Giacchino) [37 cues, 41:06] Kudos to @Jerry for the heads-up on these two being available!! Note: I'm not using "code" format for the direct links to the audio files like I've done in years past, so please let me know if there are any issues, broken links, etc.
  8. NEW SONG AVAILABLE MISCELLANEOUS 5B [Song - "A Human Touch" (Jackson Browne & Leslie Mendelson), 4:41]
  9. A streaming version of the broadcast is also featured on that site. Also, an extended transcript including items that didn't make the final broadcast (e.g., a very short bit on The Rise of Skywalker) can be found here: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/extended-transcript-john-williams-on-steven-spielberg-star-wars-and-the-power-of-music/
  10. Session footage for Theme from Schindler's List... https://www.cbsnews.com/video/anne-sophie-mutter-and-john-williams-recording-schindlers-list/
  11. Yes, @Disco Stu, that would have been a great choice!! My favorite movement. Perhaps something from Rosewood and Sleepers, too, would have been nice to hear.
  12. Funny, @Thor, I had just the opposite feeling about Helbock's album, in that I was surprised how well certain pieces came off in these jazzy, improvisational treatments. "Hymn to the Fallen", in particular. I found it to be one of the strongest cues on the album. Gone is the reverential tone of the original, but in its place, an interesting bittersweet romanticism that just works IMO. Other highlights for me include: "Theme from Schindler's List" - for much the same reason as "Hymn to the Fallen"; a welcomed break from the countless, cookie-cutter performances of this theme in concerts each year "Hedwig's Theme 4" - the most playful of the four variations on the album which wouldn't feel out of place in a Vince Guaraldi score for a Charlie Brown animated short. "A Prayer for Peace" - relatively straightforward adaptation, with slower tempo Having said all of the above, I totally get why this album would turn off Williams fans. I expected it to do just that for me.
